I am a struggling college student, so I have to pick and choose my gadgets. I have a cheepo DVD player and I have it hooked into one of the inputs on the back of the replay, then out from my replay to the TV. If I had a switching receiver it would be and easy hookup, but I dont. Anyway I go in and change the input to watch a dvd, but the problem is I have to make sure nothing is going to start recording while I am watching the DVD because it will switch to that channel. Any posibilities that future software versions will let you watch an input while recording from TV? or do I need to invest $30-50 to get a radio shack input selector?
